3-5mm front spacer needed with most suspensions. For staggered I'd suggest 15mm front spacers and a 205/50 225/45 tire stagger.

Thanks! So you'd run 205/50 15x8 +25 w/15mm spacer F and 225/45 15x9 +15 R?

I change my mind. The rears will be tough to fit and there's really only track tires available in that size.

195/50 front 205/50 rear, everything else the same. Dead flush front and rear and won't rub.

Fronts may require a 3-5mm spacer depending on how wide the tires run. And if you're mentioning 235/50 the only tire available afaik is the R888 semi slick and they definitely run wide.

I have a set of volk EVO III wheels 18"x8/9 +45 in a 4x100 pattern. What are the chances of the fitting without rebarrelling?

Needs 20mm spacers F/R to work.

Is the offset too high?

Hello, im looking at some R1 rims online, and was wondering if the offset was too high? I have some small spacers (5mm) and extended lugs ready to go. I know the problem is usually in the front, not sure if 7" wide with +37mm offset would clear?

Thanks in advance.

Details
Rim: R1
Size: 16x7
Bolt Pattern: 4x100/114.3
Offset: +37mm
Finish: Black/Polished Lip
Center Bore: 73.1mm
Material: Aluminum

You'll want 20mm spacers and extended bolts all around to fit those. May want to look into wheels that are in the correct offset range (+15 to +25 as a rough guide).

That's what I thought. Thanks for the quick reply!

Just picked up some RPF1's

Just got some RPF1's. They are 16x8 with a 38 offset. I'd like to run 225 tires but I will probably go 205 and stretch them. I have a 1990 325is, lowered with Bilstein shocks and HR springs. Just wondering what you recommend for spacers and tire size.

Cheers

For 225/45/16s use 15mm spacers all around.

If you stretch 205/45/16s, you can use 20mm F 25mm R and it will have a flush look.

I need advice to fit a 16" wheel on my 318is.

What are the offsets to have the wheel right below the fender (i don't want the tire to stick out of the car), both front and rear with 205/50/16 tires and no spacers, no rubbing.

Please check is this accurate:
16x7 front ET20?
16x8 rear Et15?
or
16x8 front ET?
16x8 rear ET15?

I wanted a XXR 501 wheels but i don't find 16x7 on market.

Thanks,
MB
